20th Anniversary Season

The famous Renaissance Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary with special guests and an exciting atmosphere. The headliner for the last few weekends in November is Broon! Broon brings his unique conversational comedy style and “bad boy” persona to the Carolina Renaissance Festival for the first time.  Dry wit and sly humor accompany a variety of tricks and stunts that are sure to keep you entertained from start to end! Broon will be performing on the Palace Stage November 23rd and 24th.


The Renaissance Festival has entertainment for everyone young and old! 500 costumes characters wander around town while knights on horseback joust three times a day! There are 11 stages, the world’s largest rocking horse, rides and games. When you work up a hunger from all the fun, there are over 100 craft and food vendors. Music and entertainment surrounds you as you travel back in time to the Renaissance.
